Homelessness and hospital readmissions

11/10/2021

People experiencing homelessness in England will be supported through pilot projects, backed by £16 million, to provide temporary accommodation, care and support.

Currently, patients who are homeless in hospital are more than twice as likely to be readmitted to hospital in an emergency compared with patients with housing. These pilots will offer improved services to help some of the most vulnerable members of society with basic needs such as housing, employment and drug cessation, that can help them get back on their feet in the long term.
